I hope Dustin Johnson is in the last group on Sunday......because that means a European is guaranteed to win (Gmac, Kaymer and Clarke)

For a serious answer, I'm going with Luke Donald again. He led the field in GIR at Firestone and also had the fewest dropped shots all week (3)

This is going to be a tough course.. over 7400 yr par 70.. OUCH..  A lot of carry over water on many long holes..  I wish Richie well,, BUT..  I think my favs are going to be Dustin, Ryo, Adam and Rori..  All have shown me to hit it long and straight..

Only three players have finished in the top 20 in each of the last three majors -- Stricker, Schwartzel, Yang. I'll have a $20 on each please.

These classic type courses seem to suit Rory well, so I like him.  Also, I like AK's chances.  And as a darkhorse candidate, I'll take the hometown favorite Mr. Toms.

I'm not expecting a lot of surprises this week. Players who will be in contention on the weekend will be those who have been in contention at other recent majors. Players who played well at Congressional in June, and at Firestone last week, should also play well at Atlanta Athletic Club. Take your pick of the usual suspects this year to show up on the leaderboard again:

Rory McIlroy

Luke Donald

Lee Westwood

Charl Schwartzel

Jason Day

Adam Scott

Dustin Johnson

Rickie Fowler

KJ Choi

Sergio Garcia

Davis Love III

Phil Mickelson

Matt Kuchar

...and anyone else I might have missed.

I'd like to see Stricker pull one out. Seems like a pretty classy guy...

I will go with either Sergio or Jason Day. Woods will make the cut and finish T-48th. Wish he would get this new swing down and start dominating again (of course he would have to make some putts as well!)

I'd have to respectfully disagree with Sergio and DLIII.  Nick Watney and Striker are notable too.  and Martin Kaymer.  Although he hasn't played well lately he seems to do ok at this tournament. :-)

It's going to be hot and humid, so my pick would have to be someone who has the fitness and stamina to go along with excellent ball striking and short game skills.    With his recent focus on fitness and working with the rugby trainer, I'm going with Luke Donald.

    • I’d like to see this evaluation done with the Mevo+. I’d like to know how the horizontal launch angle and spin axis compares to GC4. I do know that for the regular Mevo, the data I get hitting into my net is very similar to what I see in lessons with GC4. Hopefully they get to it at some point. One thing about TXG guys is that I can’t tell how sincere they are - don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the content they create, and watch many of their reviews, but I haven’t ever seen them outright say something sucks, which makes me a touch skeptical of their motives.
    • I thought I heard them say that they'd be doing more launch monitors. I'd guess Mevo will be one of them - if I heard correctly.
    • Day 346 Superspeed workout. Just sticking with protocol 2 until January when the TST superspeed accountability/progress group kicks off. Also did some tempo drills while getting warm for the superspeed stuff. 
    • Day 75 - More swings inside, really focused on the first part of my takeaway.
    • They did do this in an episode, and I believe Mike shot -2, the differential was like 1.9 though. One thing that was brought up to them by a playing partner was it's one thing to carry a 0.0 handicap at a home course, but another thing entirely to do it at a larger group of courses. They said "that makes sense" "good idea" etc., but did not stick to that plan either.
